St Ronan's College hosted several Primary Schools from the local area to give their pupils a "taste" of what the College has to offer within each subject area.  The P7 pupils also had the opportunity to meet some of our current students and gain a sense of welcomeness, which is a major part of the College ethos.  Below we have documented the brilliant events in the form of photos and the great comments we received from our visitors.
